2012.09.27 - TMZ - Axl Rose To L.A. Artist: I Didn't Write That Graffiti Hate Message

AXL ROSE TO ARTIST
I Didn't Write That Graffiti Hate Message


Axl Rose recently fired off a cease and desist letter -- claiming an L.A. photographer is spreading lies about him in a vulgar attempt to capitalize on his fame ... all so she can sell her photographs.

Here's what happened, Laura London -- an L.A. based photographer -- has an exhibit Downtown called "Once upon a time ... Axl Rose was my neighbor."

Laura claims her main piece -- a photograph of a garage door with "Sweet Child O'Die you R 1 of many nothing special " spray-painted on it -- is a picture of Axl's garage from years ago.

According to the cease and desist letter, Laura advertised the piece claiming Axl himself spray-painted the garage during a fight with his then wife, Erin Everly.

But the Guns N' Roses frontman claims that statement and the photograph are "outrageous, false, fabricated and highly defamatory."

The letter, drafted by Axl's attorney, states ... "Mr. Rose never spray-painted anything. Your salacious and inflammatory statements are plainly designed to garner attention and line your pockets with money."

Axl is demanding an apology, and wants the art show cancelled.

FYI -- Since the letter was sent, the description of the photo was removed from a website for the show, but the photo is still there ... and the exhibit is still scheduled for Sept. 29.

Express, September 29, 2012:
Axl Rose's ex-wife backs rocker in exhibition dispute

Sat, Sep 29, 2012

AXL ROSE's ex-wife has followed in the rocker's footsteps and ordered her lawyers to fire off a cease and desist letter to the organiser of a GUNS N' ROSES-inspired photography exhibition.

The star's legal team ordered snapper Laura London to scrap her event, named 'Once upon a time... Axl Rose was my neighbor', and offer Rose an apology.

The missive accused London of "salacious and inflammatory statements" after she included a snap of a garage door with "Sweet Child O'Die you R 1 of many nothing special" spray-painted on it, which she claimed was written by the rocker himself.

Now Rose's former partner Erin Everly's lawyer has also sent a cease and desist letter to London, writing, "Ms. Everly unequivocally denies that Axl Rose ever painted those statements on her garage door."

London has reportedly removed a caption linking Rose to the graffiti from the exhibition's website.
